Yeah my favorite is Peer Gynt. It is good if you like
classical music. It means you are open to almost every type
of music.


diastole from on 2001-02-24 10:23 [#00000355]

Philip Glass


walt from europe on 2001-07-23 20:30 [#00017406]

yes, Philip Glass. he is great. polynomial-c is very Philip

Steve Reich. I find windowlicker's 'nannou' very much á la
Steve Reich, especially his 'Music for Mallet Instruments'
and Part III of drumming. but aphex's nannou is melancholic,
whereas steve reich's pieces are very minimal. kind of
fusing steve reich's rythmic patterns with philip glass'
melancholy, but in the end... nannou is completely afx.

My brother is a concert pianist and his girlfriend is a
professional Cellist so I am planning on having them
orchestrate polynomial C with me, all I need is a drummer.
Listen to polynomial C you will see that those are really
the only three instruments you need. My brother could
easily play the entire polynomial C loop with one hand. I
wonder if I can get that same effect on a real piano...lets
hope so.

If anyone can play fast drums & snare's in the NYC area let
me know!

William Orbit - Pieces In A Morden Style.

This is totally ambient/classical. It was classic, classical
music taken and made into electronic style ambient. Very
interesting and quite imaginitive in my opinion. Worth
Checking out.


walt from europe on 2001-07-23 22:05 [#00017421]

a question... just saw the title of a track of
saw1(1985-92)- 'we are the music makers'. there's a piece by
edward elgar which is called the music makers and actually
starts with an orchestral prelude followed by the chorus,
singing... 'we are the music makers, we are the dreamers of
dreams' - would be weird, considering richard d. james
comments about his dreaming music while sleeping -
especially the ambient stuff. does anyone know about a
possible connection there? i mean elgar's and james music
are far removed... except the themes in their music. dreams
(afx' ambient works) and kids (afx' 'come to daddy', elgar's
'dream children', 'wand of youth').


walt from europe on 2001-07-23 22:12 [#00017423]

oh-oh, just saw that i made quite a few errors in that last
post, but anyway. maybe the title 'we are the music makers'
is just very ironic... but i think the title is no
coincidence. and here is some of the text of the elgar

we are the music makers
we are the dreamers of dreams
wandering by lone sea-breakers (now look at the picture on
the left! no coincidence)
and sitting by desolate streams...


Sonny from omaha, nebraska on 2001-07-23 22:18 [#00017424]

anything by bach, especially the fugues.
elgar's serenade for strings is pretty cool too.


Xanatos from NYC on 2001-07-24 04:03 [#00017481]

In 'We are the Music Makers' you realize that is not RDJ
That is Gene Wilder playing Willy Wonka in Willy Wonka in
the Chocolate Factory.
The scene is where they are all licking the wallpaper and
Charlie and Grandpa Joe are saying
"The rasberries really taste like rasberries"
"And the strawberries take like strawberries"
then WW says:
"And the snozberries taste like snozberries"
Then Veruca salt goes
"Snozberries?! Who ever heard of a Snozberry?"
Then Willy Wonka gets right into her face and says
"We are the Music Makers, and We are the Dreamers of the

Methinks RDJ was just a fan of WW, as we all are, and also
liked the implications that line has to the movie and his

thank you for the information about 'we are the music
makers', xanatos. i've not listened to this piece yet, but i
will soon check out afx's saw1. and to orchestrate of
polynomial-c is a great idea by the way.

William Orbit - Pieces In A Morden Style IS

BUY IT NOW its a piece of art.


|REFLEX| from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on 2001-07-24 11:59 [#00017578]

Archrival: I know I gots it, its great!


walt from europe on 2001-07-24 12:42 [#00017610]

just checked the tracklist of william orbit's 'pieces'...
there's also satie's 'ogive' - that's a beautiful piece, and
part of a series (composed in 1886, and completely different
to any music composed in that time). If you like that get
reinbert de leeuw's recording of the erik satie gnossiennes,
ogives, overture á danser sarabandes and gymnopedies. and
remember - some pieces of 'drukqs' are supposed to be very
erik satie. erik satie's pieces have equally strange titles
as aphex twin's ('piéces froides/ cold pieces', 'pieces in
the shape of a pear', 'la gentille toute petite fille/
pretty little girl' from 'nouvelles piéces enfantines/ new
children's pieces', 'unappetising chorale'). satie was just
as eccentric as richard d. james.
